Only 5 of size: 2 on the right, 3 on the left. Nice big juicy ones, but not plentiful.
Lining=6.9 That is an improvement.
We're waiting for a call from the doctor,and were going to ask about ICSI and assisted hatching
I had another Donor Egg Dream: Husband and I are 'gettin busy', and then I step aside and another woman takes my place. DE dream indeed.
The doctors office called and said that I need to stay on my same meds, and also suggested that I start estrace, but my doctor (not the one working this weekend) decided that it may have done more harm than good, since it didn't really ever improve my lining. So we got the doctor to call us, and we peppered her with questions about our progress. She agrees 5 isn't ideal, but that they are nicely sized, and very close in size, and 'cooking' at a good rate. We asked about adding ICSI and assisted hatching, and she said ICSI isn't necessarily needed since we've had such good fertilization (80%), but my thought is that it would make me feel better to have the best looking sperm united with my rare and precious eggs. Assisted hatching is an embryology call since they look at the zona and see if it seems leathery, or nice and escapable.
So for today, we are just going to hang in, do the same meds, and go in for a scan tomorrow. Slim chance we'll trigger tomorrow, unless every egg is at 18, but it's more likely that we'll go till Tuesday, and trigger Tuesday night, and retrieve on Thursday. First beta will be Christmas day. Oy.
